7:30pm
the earn portion of sea wall at pier 53. can i have a motion to approve the consent items. >> motion comment. seeing none, all in favor? aye resolution 1292 and 12 knee have been a moved. >> item nine a first amendment too leafs one 48 one four with a california corporation operating an indoor out door casual dining restaurant located at taylor street through december 2019. good afternoon commission nears senior property manager i'll like to describe to you what i'm asking your approval for, give you a brief overview and tell you about the benefit associated with this and give you a brief background and then talk a little bit about the port
7:31pm
retail leasing port policy that allows us to proceed on this and so i'm hear here to request the approval of the first amendment as read by the commissioner secretary. this is for an extension of the andre bow din least [spelling?] located in the octogon building there in fisherman's whof and they are offering to extend it in exchange for capital improvements and return 50,000 per year com additional renne and improve the visitor experience at the who have and take advantage of the new plaza that we just completed and pier
7:32pm
prom iniad and [spelling?] and they are essential to the positive experience of the whof is the improving of the bathrooms and the background of least in december 2010 the port staff came to the commission to request approval for a seven-year least with andre bow dean backto renovate the octogon building and that was approved here by the commission and then they proceeded ahead and invested over $350,000 into that facility and really improving the functionality of it and it was an area that allowed visit to sit and enjoy out door, indoor enclosed area of the elements and in addition, to that, they they were it really
7:33pm
improved the sales to the facility and so we went to the last twee month reporting period. they were able to generated one .5 million mld into this facility and that trans late to one sny thousand dollars of rent to the port and that is a portion of it through the base rent and then they genre almost $97,000 of additional percent anal rent by making this investment so, they are now proposing to do the same, if you will and what they are asking for is an additional steenings to help recould you please that investment. so they made an investment, they want to make an additional investment. they have been a good partner here of the port and so for that , they came back and requested a longer term extension, we felt that to be fair and consistent with what had been approved previously, we went -- they asked for a
7:34pm
five-year extension, we came and backed it down to a two-year extension to make it a seven year term and so if this is approved they would have a seven year term to recoup the investment that they would like too make and we have site the port retail investment policy under your staffing report under which you can make an exception to the bidding retail leasing opportunities under the following conditions the tenants is in good standing so bow dean is [spelling?] so they have consistently reporting their obligations in a timely manner and reporting all of their duties under the lead and there has been no issue with them in terms of least obligation they have a good community partner. number 210 inapt is committed to making a significant invest in the leasehold which will benefit of
7:35pm
the port. well we have seen that happen before and they are doing the same a $350,000 investment we consider that significant. they are taking an under utilized piece of the -- if you look at it, it's an octogon so we have h i ask so eight sides and this they are taking the least used sign and put it in a new dinings and beverage service and so we think that is significant and there will be for that, then there is going to be generating roughly $350,000 of additional revenue to the port. so $350,000 investment and $350,000 potential return and no rent credit or rent abatement is being offend. so, number three, the benefits of the direct negotiations out weight the
7:36pm
competitive bidding well we think there are significant public benefit to this so we are improving our visit visitor experience, we also have they are going to commit to keeping the public rest rooms even, and clean and supervised which, is essential to a positive visitor experience in the whof and so with that i kindly request your approval. thank you ask i have a motion? >> motion to accept second. >> is there any public comment on this item? commissioner any questions or comments? seeing none, all in favor? >> aye resolution 1294 has been approved. >> tim nine d is to request to enter into expwhreurve with barbecue of llc., the most-who
7:37pm
issued for 2012 for a retail restaurant least and develop of the restaurant site. >> commissioners good afternoon i'll be brief i'm here asking your permission to engage in exclusive negotiations with the most qualified respondent to the rfp request for proposal for the operation and renovation site located at terry france soy and the qualified restaurant operators who had who would be able to operate the restaurant and renovate the restaurant and provide the highest return to the port of san francisco and in the rfp we set no monthly represent but instead proposed that the submittals included a
7:38pm
proposed monthly rent. we did also annual adjustments we did require a minimum of seven% of all gross sales be included. the construction period in which no rent is paid, may be may have been plopsed the minimum least term would into the exceed 15 years however we were open to respondents proposing option extensions. the again the port's objective was to select the most qualified respondent with the ability of finances design to construct and operate the restaurant on the site we received four proposals the first were both barbecues of s f and s f california tribes attach and walk-in brews san francisco
7:39pm
it was determines that the rockship bruce was not -- to the proposal and the summary is in the different areas of scoring. again, the i have included a summary of the scoring the written proposals and the interviews we chose to interview 33 of the respondent as a result of the scoring and review by the selection committee port staff is requesting and recommending that you authorize or the port staff to negotiate with bows barbecue and bows meets the compatibility for a restaurant operator and boast has demonstratedded the restaurant development process which, is key in working with the port. bows was named many' wards
7:40pm
rnlts having @s, top restaurant barbecue 12 and san francisco restaurant named bows one of the top restaurants in the bay area for years and sunset magazine named bows one of the top ten best bar could yous in the west of 2012 what is the concept. family style restaurant, open plan, covered patio,s jazz and blues at night, barbecue, and let me see ... by approvalling this, we are not approving a leasehold for bows all you are delegating the authority to sit down with bows and negotiate for 60 days and hopefully arrive at an equitable least between the port
7:41pm
and bows barbecue. neck steps next steps if you indeed authorize me if negotiate we anticipate that could take a month to put the least together and we would be back to you with the term and conditions of that least for your approval and following that, we would anticipate going to the board of supervisors for approval and a commencement date optimistically pep; february, march -- very optimistic. and i'm happy to answer any of your questions i'm requesting your authorization to negotiate. >> thank you is there any public comment on this item? first of all, i would like to say i appreciate the hard work here with the due dates and with the fact that we had four companies that put in
7:42pm
and you chose this and so i'm pleased and i can definitely support this justice has been done. >> thank you just one question. could you tell us what the other proposals were? sure. well the first one rock and brews the most interesting part of that is i can't even similar mondays of quiz kkiss was one of the partners and that is as much as i can say it was not a responsive in -- i won't go into detail. stripes, tavern restaurant, first i'll add and i'll backup and say that the three respondents were very good if we had three opportunities, i would love to be able to do three deals with all of these so they were all high quality respondents and the teams were all very high quality. stripes tavern, kind of the difference
7:43pm
is they are proposing sick thousand month in minimum represent and seven% of grows sales, capital investment of 750 to 850,000 compare that to s f rent being 5,000 a month, three% annual scalelation seven% of gross sales a rent credit of $340,000. and an investment ... is scalelation seven% of gross sales a one-time rent credit of $40,000 only which was in the rfp and that was for a credit because there is insufficient
7:44pm
electricity at the premises so other than that, no rent credits. so boast is the highest rent paying per month, if you look at, we have setup a financial model. i don't know if you have received the spread sheet comparing apples to apples and they will pay us a million dollars over the 15 year term more than the second person. so i hope i'm answering your question. >> you did i really appreciate it and my commissioner adams said you definitely did your due diligence. diligence. >> yeah and i intrusioned bow and michael lat teen here hi. .... >> stand up i can't see you. hi did you bring me samples? .
7:45pm
>> [laughter]. okay. just on a final note and i'll make it very brief. bows stood out as a brand name the other restaurant but bows is something a little more special and so in ever area the proposal, the scoring the interview, they came out on top. >> my brother lives there and so i have already been hearing good things. >> okay all in favor? aye resident luxe 125 has been approved. >> item ten a presentation and decide on the port of san francisco blue green way project good answering commissioners david with planning and development and i am to take this opportunity to give the commission and the public an update on a variety of blue green way project and this
7:46pm
is a project to complete the water trail from san francisco mission creek on the north to the county line on the south it's a project that has been led by the port but includes many region state and regional agencies currently we have seven project in the act of planning and design and two projects that have been recently completed and so this map illustrate the line of blue green way planning and design guidelines and this is a community planning guidelines to define the los angeles and use and provide community and continue youth between the water front and we initiate tattediated this in 2010 and released a address in 2011 and we are aiming to complete this in january of next rather and one of the reasons that we have not been able to complete this
7:47pm
yet is to get a number of the items prioritized in the implementation and i'll have an opportunity to circle back and finish the planning and design guidelines. along the blue green way and identified within the planning and design guidelines was the need to establish a unique but unified signage system and the concept on the left illustrate what was in the design guidelines and we have a joint venture with indicateet keyingian and associate doing the detail design work for the blue gray sign which will be installed in nine locations between the creek and the park and we home to have the design work completed in the next month and have it go out to bid in the next spring and construction completed ideal in time for america's cup. moving
7:48pm
into specific projects, this is the bay front park shore line project the top two pictures is what it looked like before and the bottom two are what it's looking like and if you go out there now there is some other site furnishings and as soon as we took the fence down it has been receiving a lot of use and people are enjoying it today. then we have craning copark which, is approximately 8-acre park within the pier 70 area and this past saturday we we had a third in the series of community workshops and 70 attainablities to present a draft concept plan, you may recall in june and july aecosm and their team presented two alternative concept and we reviews them with the commission and a variety of stake holders holders and ae come came together and
7:49pm
developed a hybrid version of a draft planning for the entire 8pm acre park and the next slides illustrate the slide zones for the multipulse green and a park and plaza space and three is what we are call the building one 09 court area and four are the maritime garnishes and five is the shore line areas and basically crane copark is bound by -- east of ill annoy street and the orange areas are future parcels as identified by the pier 70 master plan if so this is an illustration looking at 19th street at the entrance to the park with the large green area to the left and there is a little key on the bottom right
7:50pm
that shows where that view is from this shows how simply four can be adaptively reused as a park area and rehabilitation of the cranes and access into the park from ill know street this shows area three building one 094 courts and so this is just north of leasehold and the sip way four is to the west and we are looking to do north generally and so adaptive reuse of one 09 and one ten and creating a plaza space that also recognizes the history of the site and it's former use and ship building and repair what we call the maritime shields. and allowing the ship repair vernacular to be introduced for
7:51pm
interpretation and reasonable generally the concept behind park plan and lastly this is one of the concepts on how to design one of the concept point for human power boating and this is urban beach around the northeastern shore line and access to the water from slip way four as well. with that in mind one. things that we have had to present as part of the workshop is that we don't have the budget to complete the entire project as it's designed today we had to look at the available fundings and the cost for the project
7:52pm
today with the 2008 & bonds and additional port funds our budge is 21 million for cran copark today. the estimates cost looking at construction cost and is plus an estimatemation contingency of 50% puts us at a subtotal of $33 million and are soft costs are between 30 and 33% and we have it at 33 and for a total cost of 43 and-a-half million dollar and this equates to $4.8 million in a customer, a acre which, is similar to other city front parks in the city and the other thing to note is because of the other high level conceptual of the park we have a 50% contingency because of the scion
7:53pm
and that contingency can come down and those cost can come down but recognizing thats that's the best information that we have today and we might be look at what we might be able to phase as an initial projection of the park and what we can deliver as a first phase is outlined in yellow and so it's a multipurpose green and there is a slip way four area, the short line area, east of slip way four and then 19th street to access the park. if costs come down begin to come down as a part of getting into more detail and assessment, we think, we have alternate a b and c generally in that order and the additional parts of the park can come online and then we think the area orange which, is the one
7:54pm
094 court would be a second phase and then building 49 and the areas to the north would be phase would that future development or redevelopment of those facilities in general, the workshop went well we held it down at the noonian building people were happy with the concept generally we did get a request do more research on the even time fields but we needed to share with the participates of the workshop that the development was a part of overall pier 70 strategy. next up along public projects is the
7:55pm
-- working with the arts commission, we released concepts for arts on the 292 grain silo and is one 35 applicants submitted ideas and the art commission narrowed it down to 23 and we had a jury panel narrow it further down to select four artists and just this past friday the arts commission received their proposals for their project and this is hot off the press you are the first to ever see it and i apologize that it doesn't come up as well as i like it but the first idea. and this is an etch and sketch where members of the public can sketch something up and the silos can get repainted with that image and don't know exactly how it works its an interesting idea and a way to
7:56pm
engage the community and activate the gateway project as well: the second project is transfiguration by laura has had dad and she is taking image re and history into a different context and recognizing the history of the area and the site and recognizing it graphically and so there is and environmentle butcher town and the community and highlighted it in a composes as it mural and it would like like what [spelling?] it is on the left and at night the blue red and green to highlight the aspects televise and again an interesting interpretation of how we cannen
7:57pm
hants grain silo and is thirdly we have electro land it's cameron mc dowell who proposed to use l e d lighting to apply right light to the silos that would not only interpret the way that the silos originally worked and functioned but also create an interactive game that people could use on their mobile devices like iphones or i-pods or blackberries to manipulate the colors and also provide an audio comment tare on the site and the history of the community as a part of it. and the last period is rego and mays within a city sign and speak to the power peace and nations cities communities, families and individuals. and that too will be hit in the evening. the
7:58pm
next steps for this are in early january each of these will be at the baby opera house on display two receive public excellent and in addition, we will have them online in the ports website and to refute public comment and in late january the panel will reconvene and select one artist to move forward with and depending on which it selected it it can take between six and 12 most to build and construct the probability. so hopefully, in some time in 2013, this will been up and operable. and then just a few other project we have toll larry park which, is a small park between third street and creek on northern shore this project is the with d p w and they are hoping to complete the design
7:59pm
and put it up to bid in the spring and construct it and last week the state coastal conserviancy's board granted an award to the board for $600,000 to remove dilapidated piles within the yech creek and i'll be come can back to request authorization to receive and expand those grant funds and second to last, is the bay view gateway across from toll lar aye park which, is the project is in d p w's hands and we are in 30% detail and we are working with the arts commission on a major art piece at the intersection of third and cargo way to activate and create a gateway to the community and the hopes are working with engineering that this will go out to bid with
